Sundance here I come

In a couple of hours I board a plane, once again, and head out to Utah to attend the world renowned Sundace Film Festival.
I have just unpacked my bag from my Middle East trip over the weekend, and here I am packing again, yet this time, its a lot of wool jumpers and two big jackets. The weather is going to be cold.
I will try my best to wrtie about my experience at sundance, where i hope to watch a good number of independent films, and more importantly attend panels and workshops related to film, and more specifically, editing.
Yet what i hope to gain from this is to expand my network of contacts, especially in the young filmmakers circle, and hopefully get to meet a number of the modern arab directors who i hope one day i'll get to become their go to editor.
Some good news may follow soon, when it is finalized I will be happy to share.

Sundance, prepare for the karaki editor.

Good luck and enjoy! I can't wait to read about your experience there. By the way, Crime of Love is too good - thanks for the link!

Have a great time, Laith. You should meet John Sinno, the owner of Arab Film Distribution. As the producer of James Longley's ("Gaza Strip") latest doc on Iraq, he'll be there as well. If you'd like contact info for him, let me know and I'll hook you up.

Laith, try and see "Son of Man" when it premiers Sunday and let us know what you think.

Will Omar Naim be there? Have fun!
